Medicine San Frontiers has dismissed its seven national teams from their jobs over demonstration. The dismissed persons believe to be the ring leaders who led the organization’s staff strike in Agok MSF hospital.
In February this year, MSF staff went on strike over contradictory letters from the office of national labor and national revenue authority.
The dismissal remains unclear because victims have not yet received a formal communication letter from the organization. They said MSF has submitted a sacking letter to the labor office and asks the group to get the letter in the office of labor and public service.
The controversy that occurred from the letter in the labor office indicates that the National Service Insurance Fund, NSIF has to be tax-free, and NRA stated that it should be TAXABLE which prompted the strike.
The Team leader for the sacked group, Mr. Daniel Reec Ador, questioned the dismissal procedure. He said the labor office has no direct roles in an issued letter to the accused staff.
The letter is supposed to be issued by MSF. He asked the organization to provide them with the dismissal letters or go to court.
“If the government is aware of the policy, then they will take back our dismissal letters to MSF and handed them over to us, and if they are not aware of the policy, then they continue keeping those letters. And this issue will take us to court to tell us if this is the right procedure,” he warned.
Abyei RRC officer Mr. Kuaja Yai Kuol clarified the organization had accused the workers of doing illegal strikes without notification, taking control of the hospital.
Kuol accredited that organization has carried the procedural dismissal based on the labor policy.
“We have seen all the procedures and are all correct. So, if anyone has a complaint, we can let him or her come to the labor office or go to court if he/she is not satisfied. So, this is it, either you go to court or come to the labor office”.
Last month, nine MSF committees were suspended indefinitely and warned to write an explanation letter to the MSF office indicating the reasons for the strike.
